To me it was the best HBO series of its time.
Hard to say it topped the Sopranos,but in a way it was the Sopranos,
organized crime,,cutting edge violence in the 1800s.

Anyway,stumbled across this and thought Id pass it along .
Boy do I miss that show.

Deadwood is easily in my top 5 shows of all time. It was hands down the most well written show I have ever watched. Nothing will ever top Deadwood in terms of writing

I missed out on deadwood when is first aired and finally got around to watching it earlier this year. I housed all 3 seasons in like 2 weeks. Amazing show....kinda lame how the final season ends and they didn't keep going on with the show. The Wire gets my vote as best show of all time though and it isn't even close

I have to check this show out.  I hear nothing but good things about it.

Vet, if you think that the Sopranos was one of the best HBO series of all time, you should check out The Wire.  Requires you to pay a lot of attention (I watch it w/ subtitles) but it's worth it.

yeah plus they came up with that Milch turd John from Cincinnati. I got my eye on you no I got my eye on you. While no one had eyes on the show. I watched that first season thinking it would be good and it was garbage.

I'm always telling people about Carnivale and no one has ever heard of it. That was bullshit that they cancelled it so soon, and with a cliffhanger ending.

Ya Carnivale was intriguing as garbage. I really wanted more of that show. It has some sick sub plots and the characters were so well developed. Real shame it ended so prematurely.
